Making Creature Scales

And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it is unclean unto you.
Deuteronomy 14:10
Here's one handy technique for making creature scales. You'll need white glue and squares cut or torn from used bedsheets.

Dip a cloth square in the glue, thoroughly soak it, then squeeze out the excess.
Disposable gloves make clean-up easy

Fold in half

Fold the tips down to make a point

Add the scale in an overlapping manner

Scales will dry stiff and durable and can then be painted. It can be a lot of work but the results will be worth it.

Hey, at least you're not Sir Edmund Hillary - he scaled Mt. Everest!
